Our Anointed Pastors

Our Mission is to educate, empower and enrich the church and the community through the love of Jesus Christ. It was with this vision that Pastors Johnny and Barbara Davis began this ministry, established on December 1,1995 in Sumter, South Carolina. For 12 years they were located at 705 Oswego Rd. but are now presently located at 16 Carolina Ave.


Preaching, Teaching, and Training God’s people for the work of the ministry. This ministry provides an environment, in which people find a place of belonging, acceptance, and spiritual growth. The City of Refuge Church is a church with a vision of love and unity; striving to be an example.  The Biblical teachings are both practical and easily understood through reading and applying the Word of God, which one can gain victory in their life.


 As the church continues to serve the Lord in spirit and truth with hearts and minds renewed daily upon His word, we will see God’s people blessed.  For this purpose we are here to celebrate what God has done, what God is doing, and what God is going to do! God is our refuge!
